2015 round up!

2015 certainly has been a busy one with many projects keeping us on our toes. Hear about our antics in our last blog of the year.

This year has certainly been a busy one with many projects keeping us on our toes. Christmas has definitely arrived at a good time for us to recharge our batteries and come back fresh for the new year (that’s the hope anyway!).

We had some great wins in this past 12 months, and two new recruits (not including Gemma’s baby!) and smashed our revenue target. The next year holds some great things on the horizon so we’re really looking forward to the new year.

The cyber security or cybercrime landscape (depending on whether you’re a glass half full or a glass half empty kind of person) is becoming more and more of a concern both for individuals and businesses. It’s for this reason that we had such a successful and enjoyable service launch event of Smart Security. For those of you that missed it there’s more info here and you can even check out our video by clicking this link.

We’ve put lots of time and effort this year into really getting under the hood of the FirePOWER/ FireSIGHT manager leading edge security services from Cisco and so this continues to be a huge part of our cyber security offering. We’re offering security assessments and trials on these products, you do need to qualify for these but the barrier to entry is fairly low. Do get in touch with us for more info on these.

Also, if you received one of our Christmas cards there is still a chance for you to contact us and win a free trial of Smart Security! More details about Smart Security can be found here, or, alternatively contact us to find out more – we are happy to help!

We had our obligatory work Christmas do at the NEC last week where they hosted ‘festive and fabulous’ which definitely lived up to its name. We had Anish making the most of the dodgems, Ross devouring the midnight breakfast (even after a 3 course meal), Jaime singing along to ‘Seana Paul’ and myself dancing the night away. I think it is safe to say that the team are all still recovering from our wild night!
So what does the new year hold for us? Since our membership of the Birmingham chamber is going great and the summer Chamber Expo went so well, we have decided to exhibit once again at Birmingham Chamber Expo. It’s on 29th January from 10:00-15:00 at The Vox Conference Centre at the Resorts World in Birmingham. So if you haven’t had the chance to take a look around this great venue in Brum – here’s your chance, you can also meet the team! As well as this we are excited to embark on many new projects, so stayed tuned to hear about all our latest news!

In the meantime, have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year from the whole team at Equilibrium Security!
